Just a personal suggestion but would it be better if all games kicked off at 3.05 pm next week or perhaps 2pm.

With Prince Philip being buried next Saturday and a moment of silence being held at 3pm countrywide it would not look good if we are playing football at that very time.

By kicking off early or late we could join the rest of the country in honouring him during halftime or pre-match.

I agree CTB, that's a correct and nice suggestion.

Wlth all professional sport now being rearranged around the 3pm National silence for the Duke of Edinburgh on Saturday surely the Trelawny league and others must come out with a statement to do the same in respect. If not the league then the clubs themselves must come to an agreement to change. I cant imagine it would look good to be playing football at this time.

Sorry to disagree, I know it's not like me! I would understand the postponement of football as a gesture of respect to someone who had contributed enormously to the game in Cornwall.

I will refrain from detailed comment about the 99 year deer-hunter, arch-conservative and racist in question, in case he has been mowing the pitch at Penlee Park or something and I just didn't realise !

The slavish devotion of ordinary people to the very forces that oppress them politically and economically grieves me politically and personally. Suppose it's just a matter of time before Duchess Camilla of Cornwall takes over as Queen, eh ?

Goonhavern v Holmans double header - 1st game kick off pushed back 15 min by the TL to 1345 so will be finished before 1500 ( 30 min each way before some smart arse makes a maths comment 🤔😂) 2nd fixture kick off time remains 1530

Can't hide your detestation can you Rodney. Be careful.

Thank you, my friends, for your well-meant advice. Keith, of whom do you think I should be careful ?

We live in a place and time in which the principle of free expression is under dire threat and I think it is increasingly important to have the courage to express dissenting ideas. My "detestation" of the hereditary proponents of undeserved privilege is entirely political, despite my colourful language. I think it is my moral duty not to hide it. I would, incidentally, stick up vehemently for your right to be a Conservative Christian, a Brexiteer or even a Penzance supporter, should such wrongheadedness possess you. There is too much suppression of opinion already.

At the moment, even the political party I have been a candidate for is engaged in a demeaning race to the lowest common denominators of flag-waving, mindless nationalism, even though the effects of that, within the next three years, will lead us to isolated economic ruin. It has also done nothing to defend one of my fellow teachers in Batley, fearing loss of support from a religious lobby. Most pathetically, I have received recent correspondence from my party that refers to your dead Duke with bootlicking ingratiation. This is not the right way to rebuild a red wall.

I belong to a more robust socialist tradition. For me, monarchy is one of the institutions that Trotsky's idea of permanent revolution was intended to remove. More emotionally, as a proud St Juster, I need no English king or duke.

Have you got a link to that? That's something that Cornwall FA should be disseminating, surely?

 

Only if it was sent to them to send out? It was received to leagues from what I can gather. And as games are under the leagues jurisdiction they will be the ones to advise clubs. As it is also a recommendation can't force anybody. Although the least any club/league should do is stop at 2:55 to observe the silence at 3pm then continue on.

What party was that Rodney, The Monstor Raving Loonies?

Div 1 match between Praze and Penzance this weekend looks like it is being brought forward to a 1pm kick-off.

Totally sensible.

Just chose your words carefully Rodney. I'd hate to see you prosecuted - I believe your heart's in the right place really sir 🙂.

Prosecuted for what ? Treason? Telling the truth about the bull**** Bagehot saw as necessary "to excite the reverence of the common people"? Keith, you couldn't illustrate my point about the threat to free speech for me more effectively! Thank you. CTB, I think you know I am a Corbynista. I won't follow in the elephantine footsteps of your braying-tabloid wit. Please accept my pity and compassion with good grace. I know you need it.

Libel Rodney.  Be careful - you went on a bit too much in your outburst. You are free to think what you like, but be careful of what you say, especially in print. Many folk have made that mistake over the years.

May see you at a Tinners match when it all starts again !

Keith, thanks for your concern. In 1977, I started my first degree at Lincoln Collgee, Oxford. It was in Law. Though I redirected my studies later towards literature, political activity, theology and pedagogy, having found, as Christopher Marlowe's Faustus contends, that the study of Law was best suited to a "mercenary drudge" who valued only "external trash", I managed a rudimentary grasp of civil, criminal, contract, tort, constitutional and even Roman legislation sufficiently  to pass a fair few exams. No need to worry on my legal account. My record in matters of litigation is quietly competent. I keep a very good old college friend on a retainer in case I need representation, though I have represented myself in court and won every time. No need for you to worry about such things, m8, though I appreciate your kind concern.
